Few ways to boost your energy

Few ways to boost your energy

Weight loss questions and answers
When I used to weigh way more than 150 pounds (that's 70, in kilograms), I also used to feel fatigued most of the time. However, it didn't really bother me that much, because I was literally used to being tired, so this, for me, used to be something normal. Walking to the closest supermarket made me gasp for air! I needed to take naps in the afternoon. Whenever I had some free time, I didn't have the energy to go for a walk without having to sit on a bench to catch my breath or at least clean the house properly without taking lots of breaks. I got tired too quickly, I had forgotten what feeling energized actually means. Luckily, I got mad at myself. There was definitely a time in my life when I used to have so much energy, I felt like a bunny rabbit on batteries! Of course, those wer

Kick starting weight loss is a real challenge among everyone who decides to try it. I know it was for me, I knew I had to do something to lose weight because it's not gonna come off if I just think about it real hard. However, kick starting your weight loss is not that easy, changes need to be made and you'd have to strictly follow them, or it won't work. I'll start with what I did wrong.  I assumed that I would lose weight if I simply stopped eating junk food, like potato chips, cheesy balls, tons of chocolate and bonbons.

Besides motivation, strength is one of the most important tools you need to lose weight. Whether you're on a diet (which I hope you aren't) or on a new path to a healthy lifestyle, you need a lot of strength to keep going and not give up on the first try. I decided to lose weight because of many reasons, but the ones that keep me going are these two: I knew I was overweight and needed to lose a few pounds (a few for me is about 20 lbs);   I promised myself and my family that I will look amazing this summer. A promise is a promise! However, from saying "I will lose weight" to actually doing it you need to realize that there's a long way to go and it will be hard and it will seem impossible and you will sometimes want to quit. QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION! Personally, the moment

Anything you want to do in life starts with the motivation to do it. You want to buy a new shirt because you believe you'll look good in it and that motivates you. You go ahead and ask for a raise because the money motivates you. You want to lose weight because... well, it depends. Here's my own 'list' of why I chose to lose weight: I want to be healthy I want to look great I want to wear tight tops and shorts again I want to fit in my new pair of jeans (funny story: I ordered a pair of jeans online and instead of my size, I got a smaller size but I decided I WILL fit in those jeans) Simply because I CAN. That's right, if the contestants on The Biggest Loser can lose that many pounds, it means that anyone can do this. Now, everyone knows how hard it is to lose weig...
